Leonard Cohen---Waiting For The Miracle

Baby, I've been waiting, 
I've been waiting 
Night and day
I didn't see the time, 
I waited half my life away
There were lots of invitations
And I know you sent me some, 
But I was waiting 
For the miracle, 
For the miracle to come

I know you really loved me
but, you see, 
my hands were tied
I know it must have hurt you, 
it must have hurt your pride 
to have to stand 
beneath my window
with your bugle 
and your drum, 
and me I'm up there waiting 
for the miracle, 
for the miracle to come

Ah I don't believe you'd like it, 
You wouldn't like it here
There ain't no entertainment
and the judgements are severe
The Maestro says it's Mozart 
but it sounds like bubble gum 
when you're waiting 
for the miracle, 
for the miracle to come

Waiting for the miracle 
There's nothing left to do
I haven't been this happy 
since the end of World War II

Nothing left to do 
when you know 
that you've been taken
Nothing left to do 
when you're begging for a crumb 
Nothing left to do 
when you've got to go on waiting 
waiting for the miracle to come

I dreamed about you, baby
It was just the other night
Most of you was naked 
Ah but some of you was light
The sands of time were falling 
from your fingers and your thumb, 
and you were waiting 
for the miracle, 
for the miracle to come 

Ah baby, let's get married, 
We've been alone too long
Let's be alone together
Let's see if we're that strong
Yeah let's do something crazy, 
Something absolutely wrong 
While we're waiting 
For the miracle, 
for the miracle to come

Nothing left to do ... 

When you've fallen 
on the highway 
and you're lying 
in the rain, 
and they ask you 
how you're doing 
of course you'll say 
you can't complain -- 
If you're squeezed 
for information, 
that's when you've got to 
play it dumb: 
You just say 
you're out there waiting 
for the miracle, 
for the miracle to come 

Ah baby, let's get married, 
We've been alone too long...
